There's a crazy heat wave going on throughout the United States. Expected temperatures in Washington, D.C. for the next few days are in the triple digits! Last night there was an intense thunderstorm which took out power to much of Arlington County (in Northern Virginia just outside of the District) where I live. Fortunately, it left my power unscathed because this is not a time when one wants to be somewhere without air conditioning! Happily, Los Angeles looks like it is doing fine (low 80s) so I am looking forward to spend some time there for the upcoming holiday next week.
